Assisting the Environment

Transport is one of the major causes of pollution in the UK, particularly as a producer of carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and particulates. Despite vehicle engines becoming much more efficient over the last two decades, as well as better driver education and other anti-pollution initiatives, because many more journeys are undertaken, the contribution transport makes to overall emissions has barely changed. Intelligent transport can help the sector reduce its emissions. Read this Fact Sheet to find out how.
